Barry Vogel, Esq.

Host and Producer of Radio Curious.

I like to ask questions about life and ideas.  These interviews provide some answers.

My desire to create mental images from radio voices comes from my childhood memories of awakening in a warm bed on wintry Saturday mornings, listening to “Let’s Pretend.”  The end of those all-too-short weekends was heralded each Sunday evening by the booming voice of Walter Winchell greeting “Mr. and Mrs. America” with the news of the week, as the wafting aroma of family dinner yielded yet another invisible wonder in the kitchen. Fifteen years later, my first regular radio programs were broadcast in Peru, where I was a Peace Corps Volunteer.

Radio Curious is now in its 30th year on public radio stations. We are very proud that a major portion of our interviews are now part of the Library of Congress.

The show first aired on Mendocino County Public Broadcasting in 1991 is currently aired on many public radio stations in North America and other continent.  Most all of our programs are available here and the at the Pacifica Network and Public Radio Exchange.  Archive editions of Radio Curious are added regularly to this website. You may reach us at; or 700 West Smith Street, Ukiah, California, or (707) 621 5075.

The offices of Radio Curious are located in the General Specialties Building,in Ukiah, California, 95482.  I worked from 1974 to 2020 as a country attorney, counselor and mediator providing a wide variety of confidential legal services, advice, counsel and mediation on a wide variety of topics.   The resources garnered in that endeavor help support my radio habit.
